Ship, Yacht & Boat Brokers
Ship, yacht and boat brokers offer financial service as part of the global shipping industry. Ship brokers act as specialist intermediaries between ship owners and charters to arrange ocean transport of goods and commodities by sea. Ship brokers also deal in the employment of a vessel or to buy andsell ships on a client’s behalf. Ship brokers are responsible for sale and purchase, dry cargo brokering, tanker brokering and container brokering. Ship brokers market tonnage (ships) to customers or shippers or charterers and negotiate spot/time charters to achieve maximum income for the owners. Ship brokers also maintain records or tonnage within the company’s database besides keeping a close eye on the shipping market, interpreting trends and seeing opportunities for clients.
